My early guess are Tebow, Newton, or the Gronk.

I wouldn't mind putting either Rice or Suggs on the cover that is for sure. Curse aside, Ray Lewis has been the only Raven on the cover of Madden and that was Madden 2005, this is Madden 13 here, 8 years since we had a Raven on the cover of Madden. I say let's do our best to get either of them on the cover.

Yeah, I would like them on there (curse aside) but I'm just thinking aloud as to who I think will be the ones that get it. You know I'll be voting lol. Remember a few years back when Poe won the best mascot in the NFL?

Yeah, I wouldn't mind Big Ben on the cover but that's mainly for the curse other wise I would hate having to look at him every time I go to take Madden 13 out of it's case.

I'd be okay with it if they use some accurate pics of Roethlisberger...

Curse aside I would like Suggs.
Big Ben would be awesome if the curse is bestowed upon him.
Why don't they put Peyton Manning on it, because the Colts can not function without him.

Ok so apparently how it works is that only one person of the two candidates for each team gets to move on. For example, Tim Tebow vs Von Miller, Ray Rice vs T-Sizzle, Ben vs Troy, etc.

You can only vote through the SportsNation App on their Facebook Page so if you want to vote, like the page and begin voting.

Alright guys... the final 32 have been chosen. A 32 Player Bracket to determine who becomes this year's cover athlete. Ray Rice beat out Suggs for the right to represent the Ravens and Rice faces off with AJ Green in the first round. Vote with the link below, and from what I read about the first voting to determine who represents each team, Cam Newton led the way with all votes.

The winner of the Ray Rice/AJ Green matchup plays the winner of the Drew Brees vs Matt Ryan matchup.

So Raven Nation... let's get Ray Rice past AJ Green!!!

Honestly I'm voting for Janikowski because I would almost die from laughter. If a one year wonder can win it why can't a kicker?

Janikowski let's all pick him!
It would also be funny if Tim Tebow won because he was traded and he will be the first to beat the curse.

Alright guys, the Sweet 16 have been revealed. Ray Rice advanced over AJ Green and now he has a tough opponent in Madden 11 Cover Athlete Drew Brees.

So vote Ray Rice over Drew Brees!!!

By the way.. Arian Foster beat Tim Tebow and Tim Tebow is no longer a cover candidate.

I would really enjoy if Cam Newton won. He's becoming one of my favorite non-ravens players.

I hope it's Cam Newton. Of all the remaining players he's the only one I'd like to see get hurt.

The Final 4 Has Been set... in one side we have Cam Newton vs Patrick Willis, and on the other side, Calvin Johnson vs Rodgers. Patrick Willis with the upset over Victor Cruz, thought for sure Cruz would have won. Well I'm voting for Willis the rest of the way as I would love to see a Defensive Player, especially Patrick Willis on the cover over any offensive players.

It's nice to see Willis get this far. I don't think it matters, though. I think Aaron Rodgers gets the cover. He gained immense popularity among the Madden community and the casual fans for his winning stretch last year.

I'm going to feel bad for Panthers fans if Cam Newton ends up on the cover of Madden 13. I mean they draft Cam with the first overall pick, he surpasses Peyton Manning's rookie records, and has a great season and everything is looking bright in Carolina. The out of the blue, the dreaded Madden Curse Strikes down on Cam Newton!

Well done to Willis but I like him too much so I hope he doesn't win

I voted for Newton, just a case of who do I like the most and then worked my way backwards to least favourite

The curse is real
